Quotable Giveaway: December 1, 2012

In the comments, name the piece of literature that the following quote is from. If correct, you'll be entered into a monthly drawing for a $5 Barnes & Noble Gift Card.

"This experiment was baseball. In order to give the thing vogue from the start, and place it out of the reach of criticism, I chose my nines by rank, not capacity. There wasn't a knight in either team who wasn't a sceptered sovereign."  

And come back next Thursday for another quote!
